I am looking for electronic books or .pdf files of some classic railroad history books from the 1970s that I want to read or re-read. I own the original books - frequently several copies - so I am not looking to steal content from anyone, I just like the convenience of reading these books electronically when I am traveling.

Some I am looking for:

"All Aboard with E.M. Frimbo"
"The Final Years (of the O&W)" by Ed Crist and John Krause

Has anyone made an effort to move these books to electronic format - and get permission from the original authors/publishers to do so?

Thanks Chris.

Try Amazon dot com --- they have the Frimbo book for a very low price, like less than a gal of gas !!!

Google books might be a source. But then, the desired books might be too new for that source.
